For those new to MHR, you may not be aware that MHR is a community of tough but sensitive poets.
Not really. But I had to get you to keep reading somehow. The truth is that last year we just kept giving a beat down to divisional opponents during the weeks leading up the the games. Our weapon of choice? The tested and true Limerick. So if you are looking for a laugh, or you just can't sleep tonight, here are some of our previous Limerick contests with the fools over at Arrowhead Pride, Silver and Black Pride, and Bolts From the Blue.
It's simply too easy to make fun of players like JaMarcus "That Pizza Is Mine!" Russell, Philip "I've Got a Drew Brees Complex" Rivers, and the entire defensive line for the Chiefs (how many 1st-round draft picks do they need to waste, I mean, you can only use 4 guys at a time).
Troy Hufford (kentuckybronco) and I were thinking that since today is National Limerick Day it would give us yet another opportunity to not only drop some knowledge on the division, but also some seriously good insults. However, we're making this Open Mic here at MHR, so there is no topic off the table.
You want to make fun of Tim Tebow? Try to make it rhyme, sucker. You want to get a blast off on the Hoodie? Do it while counting syllables, punk. Or perhaps, like me, you want to send JaMarcus Russell out in style:
Ode To The Dude Who Didn't Play QB For The Raiders
JaMarcus The Hutt liked to eat.
So hungry he ate his whole cleat.
Only he couldn't stop there.
300 pounds was his care.
The taste of twinkies simply too sweet.
Now it's your turn, MHR. Give your best NFL or Broncos-related limerick. Don't worry if your syllable counts aren't perfect. You know that Raiders fans won't be able to read them anyway.
